FLORAL WRAP DRESS

Always feeling happy in a floral wrap dress

We are back a week from a short vacation to England. I will not bore you with the pictures because they are always the same. We love England and especially Sussex, and we went there for the I don’t know how many time! We had fantastic weather and spend a lot of time at the beach. And we always go to Brighton. Really a great city! So now our 25-year anniversary party is been( I write a post about that) and the holiday is over, it’s back to real life again. Fortunately, we still have great weather here in the Netherlands, so we can eat outside every night and stay outside till bedtime. I think that is so relaxing. When we got home there were a lot of packages that need to be unpacked, tried on and be photographed. Enough to do! I still remeber writing a post a while ago about how fun it seemed to be working with bloggers and companies. I also know I was complaining a little. Because it seemed like everyone had fun collaborations except for me! Now I really have to plan wich package and company comes first etc. How crazy is that! And….more important! I now have such a nice collaboration with Shelbee! Our Bad Buy Book series! I love it dear Shelbee. But one of the packages that was ready for me was this amazing floral wrap dress.

Floral wrap dress

I am already fond of dresses but especially wrap dresses. And after all the happy floral and pink and red outfits of the last weeks, I also like to wear a black dress again. But all black seemed to sober for a dress in this season. I wear very little orange but this dress has it combined with brown and I think that is very nice. Color, but still understated. The fun part of the dress is the high low hem line. I love that. I didn’t see it when I ordered the dress. An extra bonus! Btw, I later remembered I wore this shirtdress last year in orange and pink. Forgot all about it. And wearing the same shoes. I wore it right away yesterday!fashionable floral wrap dressfashion over 50 floral wrap dressdresses in floral wrap dressoutfit floral wrap dressfloral wrap dressfashion over 40 floral wrap dressbrown shoes and floral wrap dressfashion floral wrap dress

PLEATED SKIRT LIKE VICTORIA BECKHAM & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Where do you get your inspiration?

First I want to ask you, if you want to be kept informered of the latest post and you did not get an notification last Tuesday, to subscribe again in the sidebar with your email. I cancelled my old WordPress.com site and thus the Jetpack plugin that registered the email subscribers. The reminder email for the linkup is something different. I would appreciate it!

Since Victoria Beckham has left the Spice Girls, she is to me one of the greatest style icons. But not only that! I think she’s an inspiration because she did not walk an easy path, also not in her marriage, but she has become, in my view, a great designer. I really love her style. Take a look here at her new collection for Target. This outfit is also inspired on her looks. She has got gorgeous photo’s on her Instagram account.

Wearing it like Beckham…

I wanted to purchase a pink pleated skirt for this season. You guys know that I already have two. And on Pinterest I have a Victoria Beckham board and when I was searching for new pictures I came across this one and I was inspired to wear a pink skirt like that. Yes hello, I know I don’t look as good as she does, am not as talented as she is etc., but I liked the look! So who is your style icon and do you sometimes wear the same look as your style icon?

Speaking of style, I really need your Style stories if I want to continue with the Styled by…. series. So please read this page to see if it is something you like to write about. I would be very sorry if I have to quit these series.white blouse like Victoria Beckhamsneakers like Victoria Beckhampink skirt like Victoria Beckham Love Victoria Beckhampleated skirt like Victoria Beckhamoutfit like Victoria Beckhamwhite sneakers like Victoria Beckhamclutch like Victoria Beckhamcollection Victoria Beckham

SHOE TRENDS: UPCOMING SPRING ESSENTIALS

Shoe Trends: Upcoming Spring Essentials

Today I have Claire again as guest writer!

Remember that “Sex and the City” episode when Carrie was mugged? That was the episode where the probably the most iconic sentence was shouted: “Please sir, you can take my Fendi baguette, you can take my ring and watch, but you can’t take my Manolo Blahniks!” There is something about shoes that make us women feel super powerful, especially if our feet are “dressed” in the trendiest pair. To help you and your feet feel happy, here is a list of shoe trends for spring 2017.

Sock boots

Balenciaga went crazy with these on latest fashion shows. We have seen Rihanna rock their leather-velvet navy blues, and we admired those lime green ones as well as those square antelope leather ones. Besides Balenciaga, brands like Valentino and Celine also embraced this vibe. Not only do these cool boots look incredibly futuristic, they are also made of top-quality materials, since they have to be skintight. Not to mention that they are also comfortable as hell! You can find them in a wide range of styles and, while wearing them, you will feel like you have 2 layers of skin on your legs – which believe it or not, feels great!shoe trends

Wear them with:

You can copy Rihanna’s style and rock them with a striped button-down shirt and a mini denim skirt. They also go great with baggy jeans and oversized tops or crop tops – basically, they go with almost anything.

Flatforms

The trend that we thought will never see the sunlight again managed to come back once more. Platform sneakers or flatforms are among us, probably to remind us of the fashion of the ‘80s. People either hate them or adore them. Brands like Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci etc. really embraced these, and you can now find them in literally any color and pattern. Silver or black ones with white stars are probably the most popular choice.SHOE TRENDS

Wear them with:

If you decide to buy these, go all the way and combine them with eighties-like garments such as leggings and one-shoulder T-shirts. You go girl!

Glittery slip-on shoes

It is simple – many of us just don’t enjoy heels. That’s why slip-on shoes or ballet pumps will always be here for us. They are a great option when you want to be trendy, but want to avoid heels. Not to mention that they also got a glittery update now, so you will definitely stand out.shoe trends

Wear them with:

Since they are so girly-like, they will go great with those cute day dresses every woman must have. Also, you are free to wear them with your blouse, jacket and skinny jeans if you love that cute, college-girl vibe.

Kitten heels

Kitten heels were never this popular and cool. Kitten heels are basically shoes with super short and slender heels (from 1.5 inches to 1.75 inches), which became popular thanks to Audrey Hepburn. Even though many girls think of them as “granny heels”, check out what famous designers had done to them, like Celine – with their straps and ties, Dior – with their logoed version, and Miu Miu with their transparent flower details.shoe trends

Wear them with:

Since they are super elegant, they go great with business attire, but since it is the year 2017, who can forbid you to rock them with your boyfriend jeans and a bold tank top?

Athletic inspired boots

From all of those athleisure combinations, this is something that just had to happen, even though we didn’t expect it. Dior and Versace decided to launch boxer-like boots that, surprisingly, look incredibly cool and versatile. Versace and Maison Martin Margiela also followed this vibe, and as far as we can see, they are going to stay among us for a while.shoe trends

Wear them with:

Again, since it is the year 2017, your options are limitless, but try sticking to minimalistic and monochrome outfits since these boots are already over the top.

That would be it. What do you think about these trends? Let us know in the comments.

GREEN FLATS UNDER DENIM & DENIM

Green flats for spring!

I love flats because they are so easy to walk on and look stylish with every outfit. I have them in all sorts of colors and each season I find a new pair. But I didn’t have green ones! How nice was it then when I was approached by FSJ shoes and was allowed to choose a pair of flats! Well, green ones please!

This site is fantastic! You can design your own unique shoe! You can choose from existing models and customize the heel, color etc,. Or you can mail a photo or drawing and completely specify how you want the shoe. How awesome is that! You can find here all information about designing your own shoes. Perhaps I might design my own shoes next time! Wink wink!

Denim & denim and lot’s of green!

I always found denim on denim hideous. Until I tried it here and actually liked it very much. This denim dress is one I often showed on the blog, but I love to wear my jacket on denim! It looks a bit like denim, but then green. The color of the jacket is one that you can wear on so many outfits, but I like it best on denim. When I was asked to choose a pair of shoe’s , I knew they had to be green. Because I just ordered a blue pleated skirt with a sage green sweater and I wanted to wear green shoes with it. The shoes and sweater I will show you later because they are a bit to much ,, spring” And I don’t want to show outfits that I am not able to wear in ,, real life”. When I bought the jacket, I also bought a mint green blouse to wear it with the jacket. I never wore the blouse because mint green as top piece is making me look very ill. So I am very glad that I now have mint green shoes to go with the jacket!jeans and green flatsdenim dress and green flatsgreen bracelets and green flatsgreen jacket and green flatsgreen earrings and green flatsshoes green flatsoutfit with green flats

PLAID PANTS WITH BOMBER JACKET & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

My very first plaid pants!

For years ago I wore plaid much more. I had a plaid pencilskirt, plaid bodycon dresses, plaid trenchcoat etc. But I can’t remember I have ever worn plaid pants. I am really fond of plaid, I like a classic style. By the way, I don’t know wether you name it plaid or checkered, I really don’t know the difference but I like to call it plaid. These pants I bought recently when Gerben and I actually went into the city to buy new sneakers for the both of us. To use in the gym…..not for a sporty look! When we had bought them Gerben said: don’t you want to shop over at h&m? Well, you don’t have to tell me that twice! Bye bye Gerben, see you in an hour!

I love above the ankles trousers, 7/8 lenght. I have skinny legs and with a long upper body long pants make me so drawling. I only have above the ankle pants. I saw this one straight away and knew it was meant for me. I hardly wear pants , but the past season I have bought several, this one and this one. The top was very cheap so I bought the same one in green too. Come on, you all say that green is thè color for 2017, so what could I do? And then I saw the bomber jacket! Isn’t it just a great jacket! I love it, and I know I will be wearing it a lot. Over dresses, but also as a spring/summer outdoor jacket. They had it in all colors. You really should check it, link is under the post. I also still love my patent leather Chelsea boots. They are so easy to walk on, for shopping or doing your groceries. When I would go out for lunch or something like that, I would wear ankle boots with a small heel. I love this bracelet with snakeprint. It is very old, it is a bit to tight now because I bought it when I was much thinner. Because it is still very cold here, I wear a basic shirt under the top. But I love to wear it with a lace camisole.

About the Styled by………series.

Last week you could admire Nicole’s style story on the blog. Every first Tuesday of the month someone tells her or his style story and what it says about their personality or how it evolved. But I am looking for more of your stories! So come on, write a lovely story, add some great pictures and I will let you shine! If you are Dutch and rather write in Dutch, no problem, I will translate it! So read the Styled by….page in the menu and see how it all works, and if there are any questions just contact me!outfit in plaid pantschelsea s and plaid pantsburgundy and plaid pantsbomber with plaid pantsgrey bomber and plaid pantssnakeprint bracelet and plaid pantsfashion plaid pantsme in plaid pants

And I also said that when I reached 100, I would add my favorite of the week. So from now on I will. I will not only choose my favorite because of the outfit, but also because she or he has a great post written or just because……they are my favorite!
